Video editing

Once a video signal has been digitised, it can be considered as simply a time-based series of still digital video images. From within video editing applications, single or multiple effects can be applied to all the frames within a movie or just to a selected clip within the movie. For more detailed editing, a selected clip can be exported to an image editing application as a 'frame stack' - a format which separates the clip into its individual frames. After editing of the individual frames is complete, the frame stack can be converted back to video clip format for reimporting back into the video editing application.
